The Military Gendarmerie (Polish: ?andarmeria Wojskowa, abbreviated ?W) is a military provost created in 1990 in Poland as an independent part of the Polish Armed Forces.

History

Polish military police traces its history to the communist era Military Internal Service (Polish: Wojskowa S?u?ba Wewn?trzna), World War II-era Service for Protection of the Uprising (Polish: Wojskowa S?u?ba Ochrony Powstania), interwar-era military police in the Second Polish Republic, formations of the January and November Uprising, Duchy of Warsaw and finally, some officials of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, first created in early 17th century.

The modern Polish Military Gendarmerie was formed on September 1, 1990 on the basis of order No. Pf-42 / Org. Minister of National Defense of 18 April 1990 and order No. 062 / Org. Chief of the General Staff of the Polish Army of June 15, 1990. At this formation the structure was as follows:

  • Headquarters of the Military Police in Warsaw
  • Military Police Command:
    • Warsaw Military District

    • Silesian Military District

In addition, the following Military Gendarmerie Departments were established: Warsaw, Krakow, Bydgoszcz, Szczecin, Wroc?aw and Pozna?, and also the Military Gendarmerie Training Center in Mi?sk Mazowiecki.
